I took this picture yesterday right where the Glover-Archbold Trail crosses New Mexico Ave. That is no filter- the water is wine/blood red colored. It was like this prior to the storm yesterday and still is there today.
This spot must collect a lot of strange runoff because ever 2-3 weeks it gains some color. Sometimes faintly white and sometimes a faint blue/white, but this was so bright and shocking I had to take a picture.
I called the NPS and sent them the picture too. They say that they are going to contact DC govt folks and probably have to test the water.”
